Everyday: UK Greetings (across the board)
“I like to have a UKG stock control and keep on top of what designs are selling by updating and swapping designs that may not be working for me. I love to do this with UKG because they have such a diverse range of cards.”

Humour: Paperlink (Wrinklies)
“We all love this range. It is updated regularly and is always designed to make us laugh out loud.”

Contemporary: Hammond Gower (Piano)
“Wow! These cards are so bang on trend, I absolutely love them. Using this season’s Pantone colours of blush and gold, there’s a caption to suit everyone.”

Traditional: Nigel Quiney (Pizazz)
“Probably our best-selling standalone card range!”

Handmade/hand-finished: Second Nature (Champagne)
“Customers can’t get enough of them – they are great for both male and female occasions.”
